The first ever music school in Rwanda due to open shop in March is in final phase of implementation, according to the school’s director Mighty Popo. This idea of starting the school had been in the pipeline for a long time, but now it’s about to become a reality.

Speaking to a celebrity magazine, Sunday Night on Isango FM, Popo said that the school was in short of only a few materials but promised that in a few days’ time the school’s doors would be open. He said, “The school will officially open its doors on 10th March 2014. The materials and equipments we have so far are enough although we are short of a few items here and there.”

The initiative, launched by Workforce Development Authority (WDA), will see thirty students admitted in the first intake. The thirty were selected through a live singing competition in December 2013.

The school comes as an answer to the problem of untapped talent among the youth which have more often than not gone to waste due to lack of clear orientation.

Speaking briefly after the selection exercise, Mighty Popo remained optimistic that the music school would go a long way into molding future music stars both in the country and in the region.  Although a total of sixty four had registered for admission, only fifty nine turned up for the finale.
